Meritum Cloud consolidates financial reporting for Elton John AIDS Foundation
Elton John AIDS Foundation operates in a complex environment involving multiple charitable entities, beneficiaries, partners, currencies, and statutory obligations as a grant-giving organization. Therefore, it is vital that its financial data is accurate, timely, and actionable.
Here, the Foundation’s Finance Director Fiona Russell describes Meritum Cloud’s role in making financial information more accessible and visible within the organisation.
The problem was the so-called bottleneck in the finance department. The EJAF had a solid financial system, but it had some shortcomings in reporting. They needed more insightful financial information. Their challenge was to improve spending accountability across the organisation.
“Meritum Cloud has designed an executive reporting dashboard within Power BI, so our next step is to implement the data engine to populate that."
“As well as our financial system, we will ultimately be overlaying Power BI reporting functionality on our grant system and CRM platform also, so we will be consolidating information across three different data sources.”
